Today’s technological sophistication is at its peak. One of the most felt impacts of technological advances is the ease of conducting trade or business activities.
Electronic commerce websites, known as e-commerce, are online-based trading sites used by most Indonesians in trading transactions with many advantages in them.
Among them the process is easy, fast, efficient, and affordable, but it also makes it easier for customers to find the product they need, if the product is not available where they live.
This is also a solution for those of us who want to start a business or look for superior products in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Slowly this online shop is growing rapidly and people have new shopping habits.
Shopping online is a safe way not to spread the corona virus. You also don’t need to bother, because the goods you are going to buy or sell will be delivered directly to the recipient’s address with a variety of courier services available. Courier companies are also now being positively affected by the boom in use of e-commerce today.
But you certainly don’t just choose e-commerce because you can have a bad experience in an e-commerce that is not credible.
